Building a Windows PowerToy

by Brandon on January 4th, 2007

Earlier today I made my first of several posts about building a Windows Vista “PowerToy” on the Windows Shell Blog.  This first post is an introduction to what PowerToys are and a bit of history of how mine (a Windows Search gadget for the Sidebar) began.

    It looks just like an example I’d love to see Brandon – thanks.

    Any chance of posting the code soon please? Some downloadable and gazeable code before part II would be fine with me 🙂

    Been watching for part II… should I keep watching?

    Looks very cool. Will you be posting Part 2 any time soon? Have you considered posting your Powertoys on Codeplex?
